Women’s Football Alliance Announces All-Americans; Boston Renegades Top League with Twelve Selections
BOSTON – Wednesday, June 23, 2015 – Twelve players from the Boston Renegades have been recognized as “All-Americans” by the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA). The Renegades top the league with the most All-American selections of any team in 2015.
“It’s great [for our players] to receive this kind of recognition,” said Renegades Head Coach Don Williams. “But they know that when the ball is snapped, there are always ten other teammates on the field factoring into their success,” he continued. “Individual awards are great in that they show everyone is doing their jobs.”
The players have been invited to represent the league’s National Conference at the WFA All-American Game on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at Southwest College Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif., in advance of the league’s championship game.
On June 27, the Renegades will host a divisional playoff game against the West Michigan Mayhem at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville, Mass. Should they win, they will also host a regional finals match on July 11 against either the Cleveland Fusion or Chicago Force.
